LA Clippers coach Tyronn Lue and Allen Iverson joined each for a hilarious TikTok commercial. The history these two players share makes the collaboration extra special
Despite a successful coaching career, Ty Lue to this day is most famous for an incident that took place 20 years ago. In Game-1 of the 2001 NBA finals, Allen Iverson walked over him, making it one of the most iconic moments in NBA history.
Tyronn Lue and the LA Lakers ultimately won the championship. However, Allen Iverson was the MVP that year and played his best in that series. The Philadelphia 76ers were no match for Shaq led LA Lakers coached by Phil Jackson. That game put an to the perfect postseason run the boys in purple and gold were having.
Given their history, AI and Ty Lue pairing up for a commercial is a pleasant surprise.
